I saw on YouTube the other day that you have to "stich" the 360 video BEFORE you edit it.

What does "stich" mean and what software should I use to do it?

Hello,

Stitching is literally stitching the RAW video from your camera to a format that is readable by a player or video editor. Your camera should have come with a software that will do this for you.

Thanks, I'll look on the camera but it's a tiny Samsung with a screen about half the size of a stamp.

It always help if you give more detail regarding the camera (and your computer).

For instance I have a Samsung Gear 360 camera (older) that looks like a undersized pool cue ball with a tripod underneath. It has no screen except for a small one that allows you to select your options. It is not full 4K and cost just about $150 US. The newere ones are 4K, have a white base and cost around $250.

Go here for tutorials on 360 video..

Hi Robert,

To be clear, the software is installed on your computer, where you stitch the videos for playback and editing. This is not done on the camera.

As Steve mentioned, Samsung Gear 360 uses a special version of ActionDirector to do this, so it should of come with your camera if that is what you have. If not, check with Samsung.

And to what is stitching:

A consumer 360° camera has two fisheye lenses at both sides of the camera. They make pictures with two round pictures side by side. Thats nice, but not 360°. What is needed, is an "equirectangular" picture. That must be calculated. The both round pictures are "stitched" together.
I have a samsung gear 360 (2016) as described by stevec. There is a special "Gear 360 Actiondirector" in the package. The Cyberlink ActionDirector or PowerDirector is NOT able to stitch 360° pictures/clips. So you need the software by Samsung.
